Tiny Flowers and Muddy Feet

Ah, sweet fall is here, and the tiny flowers around us are poking out in sighing relief from the summer heat.

Still in the Internship, and the adobe bathroom is coming along in between fall rain showers. Makes for good mud stomping!

Coming up...Perfect corners!
Annie, the baker and brick-layer extraordinaire!
The tub space is prepared and leveled-- the most detailed work of the whole building.

A butterfly testing out the new window. (Photos to come in next entry...)

The garden.... well, we got the earth super boosted with compost and love, planted loads of seeds, watered with river water every evening, then wouldn't you know it-- the storm clouds burst and rained forth liters and buckets and barrels and more! Many of our freshly planted seeds washed away, and some little few survived. And so we continue to be a center for learning and experimentation in an unforgiving and unpredictable climate. So, we will plant again...

This is the okra, still going strong. Some other survivors are the radishes, turnips, cilantro, garlic, elephant garlic, and chard. Not too bad, just a starting point to start again!

And of course, the kicthen is the center of life at Mama Roja. The bread and baking delights just keep getting better and better!

Our sweet butterfly friends, still kissing our sweaty foreheads and floating through the kitchen.
